Architecture and Heritage
For Those in Peril (1)
The Coastguard Almshouses, Chyandour
Many miss this building, as it hides away on the hill.
The Admiralty built the Almshouses in 1886
The tower is quite extraordinary
with its Italianate arrangement and detailing at its head
Delightful treatment of the lintol and quoin stones
with Gothic relieving arch and rosette inset.
